Annual Tri-Parish Mass on the Grass & Picnic, Shawnee Park, Sunday, September 28
Mass begins at 11:00 am. THIS IS THE ONLY MASS FOR THE DAY! This is our time to bond with our sister parishes and share Mass and a meal together. Fried chicken and beverages are provided. Please bring a covered dish to share (there are big appetites, so please make big dishes). Each church has sign-up sheets - be sure to sign up and indicate what food you will be providing. We need a head count to order chicken and beverages. We always need lots of hands to set up and tear down. Please volunteer at your church to help out with our special day. Don't forget to bring your covered dish, lawn chairs, sunglasses, sunscreen, bug spray, personal cooler (if needed), extra drinks, and whatever you need to make you comfortable!

          One Body - One Faith - One Mission
               Our Tri-Parish Vision 

In the heart of our three churches resides the Triune God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each church community is unique in character, yet we are bound together in one baptismal call - One Body, professing One Faith, and living One Mission: Faithful to the magisterial teaching of the Catholic Church, we strive to be co-operators with the truth in love and build the Kingdom of God.
